Manuel Marin, president of the Alliance, raises the flag for equality


Along with the heat, this summer has sparked debate between the June filibuster against abortion restrictions, same-sex marriage rulings and the George Zimmerman ruling. As a result we’ve made summer memories by crowding the capitol, Facebook ranting and blogging our opinions. Just because summer’s ending doesn’t mean social issues do, too. If you’re college-bound, these groups will definitely give you your sea legs into the theory and practice of politics, debate and activism within the San Antonio community.
